How do I lock in my desktop icon arrangement? I have re-arranged them a
dozen times, and after a few bootups, they always change. I have "Lock Web
Items on Desktop" selected, and have "Auto Arrange" unselected. I also have
"Align to Grid" selected. Nothing I do seems to help. I just recently
migrated from Win 2000 Pro to XP Home. Help!!
